From Beyond is a short film freely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short story of the same name from 1920. It is set in northern Italy at the time of WWII and will be shot entirely on location between northern Italy and Scotland in late 2020.
It will feature a British-American cast and an international crew. The film blends different genres including thriller, war movie and horror in a powerful mix we cannot wait to bring to screen. Stay tuned for more information to come.
While we chose to set the story in a different time and place than the author intended, we hope our adaptation will add spectacle to the narrative, blending the heritage of Lovecraftian themes with the iconic visuals of a WWII film.
Nonetheless, we like to consider our From Beyond‘s adaptation not just one of many Lovecraftian works of art being produced nowadays, but rather a quality, faithful execution of Lovecraft’s original visionary genius.
